Maharashtra Women’s Commission member Dr Asha Mirge’s comment that women themselves are responsible for rape has generated anger on micro-blogging site Twitter. Here are some of the tweets.
Shame on such a woman #AshaMirje .People like you don’t deserve to be respected. Disgusting Lady!! Wat’s wrong in watching a movie @ 11 pm?

As a women’s commission member, she should resign to respect the commission itself, How long shall we bear these stereotypes? #AshaMirje

Protesting workers took to the street refusing to pick up garbage in the area and instead spread rotting garbage across the roads.
